Affordable Housing for California Teachers

Affordable Housing for California Teachers

Sacramento, CA

Late last month Governor Jerry Brown signed SB1413 which expanded options in support of affordable housing for teachers and school employees. 

Because California has some of the highest housing costs in the nation, it limits some school districts’ ability to hire and retain some of the best teachers. Under the law, Local Education Agencies (LEAs) would be able to build housing on school property and limit the occupancy of that housing to district workers. Under the measure, districts can continue to qualify for the federal tax credits associated with low income housing. 

When Brown’s signature made the bill official, the legislation’s sponsor State Senator Mark Leno (San Francisco) stated, “When high quality teachers can’t afford to live where they work, the entire community suffers.”
